szariksdad.. Thanks for the input, I have a small pile of treats at the end of the 6-70 treat track. He has to platz when he gets to that point but it is usually during the devouring stage. I usually set up small pads along the way but haven't started to make him platz at those because there are just a few treats there.
We are about ready to start tracking on a grass field. If I can I will be getting to it on Saturday otherwise most tracking is done on soft sandy (Central Calif. dirt)
or hard pack before we go to training. (2-3x per week)
Any suggestions on how to get started on grass would be greatly appreciated, thanks..

When I introduced them on the actual track, it sounds like I do It similar to what the other poster mentioned. Its from Ivan, but I have some of those plastic soap containers like you use for camping, I start off with that at the end of some tracks, then I put the articles on those so the food is under the article.
He looks good, that cut, dry looking grass is probably difficult.

|Steve Strom||Hey Rob, did you do any work with the articles off the track?|

Chunks Dad, luckily we have no red ants here in CO but have other problems though. From people in Florida I have heard they do shorter tracks with only a few pieces of food for learning so they are not a problem but others here from Florida might say otherwise.
Rob one thing I would encourage while he is still learning is to reinforce the down at the article with a command right now so he remembers what he is supposed to be doing.

Not really boring to me... I am just learning about tracking and using food still. He has begun to search from step to step and get the treats but several time lately we have run into some ants.. The first time he toughed it out and ate the ants, after that he skips the treats.. I am really looking forward to his getting out of the food stage... Off to track tonite before training... Great film, I aspire to be where you are...
Thanks for the post..
